Program Components

This program is designed to work with adults who have little or no reading ability, those seeking their GED, and those requiring English as a second language.

The basic program starts with the Laubach Way To Reading. You are taught the different sounds of consonants and vowels, and how to pronounce the words using phonics.

The latter enables you to pronounce words correctly and therefore learn the spelling of words accordingly.

On completion of this step, you will continue to learn grammar, sentence writing, paragraph writing, and essay writing.

You will progress to the Challenger and Voyager Series where you will learn life skills, and higher levels of the English Language and English Writing.

Basic mathematics taught by our tutors are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
